This Summer Sounds Awesome: Acadia's Summer Music Academies

Acadia's Summer Music Academies return this July with Concert Band Camp (July 5-11) and the brand-new Collaborative & Creative Music Camp (July 13-18), which focuses on expressing creativity and musical problem-solving skills. Summer Music Academies are primarily designed for youths age 10-23, but musicians of any age are welcome to participate.

In either academy experience, you'll enjoy a week of immersive musical learning on the Acadia University campus. You'll rapidly improve your skills with the guidance of phenomenally talented music instructors from across Canada. Students can stay on-campus in a comfortable Acadia residence, or join us as a day student.
